Abstract

The Garner Valley downhole array is located in the geologically complicated and seismologically active San Jacinto fault zone. The choice of the site and the potential for a large earthquake there are discussed. The equipment is described in detail. The data recorded through the end of 1 April 1990 are summarized. Two large events at different locations are discussed in some detail and analyzed for amplification of the signal at the surface.
